CPD in the United States of America often uses slightly different language to describe the practice of CPD e.g. CE – Continuing Education, CPE – Continuing Professional Education, CME – Continuing Medical Education, or CLE – Continuing Legal Education.
The CPD Standards Office was founded in the UK and many CPD Standards providers operate within various European countries and are active in delivering training provision to European professionals.
There is a rising demand for CPD training within the Middle East. Over the past decade, the Gulf region has increasingly focused on delivering high-quality education and increasing standards of professionalism and competence.
CPD within Australia and New Zealand follows a similar model to the UK. Many professions are led by professional institutes, bodies, and regulators, all with similar CPD schemes and requirements to their UK counterparts.
Across the African continent, CPD is an emerging practice with many individuals and professionals keen to undertake CPD for ongoing educational purposes.
